Through Bible we know that Samson the judge of Israel killed one thousand Philistine soldiers with a fresh jaw bone of ass. Samson was strengthened by the Spirit of God and he had enormous strength of the Spirit of God, that he killed a young lion with bare hands by tearing its mouth like a lamb (Judges 14: 5,6). He shook the city gate of Gaza and removed it from the wall with its gate frame and bars and locks and carried it on his shoulder and carried to the mountain against the city (Judges 16:3). He killed all the people of Timnath hip and thigh alone (Judges 15: 6-8). He pushed the centre pillars of the great city hall of Gaza and made to collapse the whole building and killed about 3000 people (Judges 16: 27-30). Yes, these reveal his super natural strength caused by the Spirit of God!
But killing a thousand armed soldiers armed with spears and swords by a mere jaw bone of an ass is not by supernatural strength alone, as he could have been attacked by at least few soldiers and he could have been killed (Judges 15: 14-16). So the secret behind his victory over his enemies need to be understood!
First of all, to face a thousand armed soldiers by a single man needs a supernatural speed of movement without giving a chance of fraction of a second to his enemies. Secondly, he has only one chance of fatal hit to every armed soldier, and no second chance as it will increase his operational time. Thirdly the armed soldiers would be protected by helmet on head, bresrt plate on chest, armoured dress around body etc. to protect the vital parts of the body, but Samson need to strike at a place vulnarable, inspite of all protection. So, it was not the forehead where David hit with a sling stone on giant Goliath as Samson had only a fresh jaw bone, which cannot penetrate the forehead!
What is the speciality of a fresh jaw bone of an ass? It was a weapon used by Samson, having a ‘V’ shape, having about four front teeth pointing almost straight but not vertical to the jaw, for the purpose of shearing the grass from the earth. It was not dried bone as it would brake off in to pieces by the strong hit by Samson. It was new bone having a greater strength with in and ofcourse not to be used against hard substance! So, in which part Samson would have hit by the bone with out breaking it? The vulnarable, unprotected part of every soldier was the portion joining the neck and the shouldier, near collar bone! Even without a sharp item a heavy blow at this vulnarable portion can make a person to fall!
So Samson gave one hard hit by the teeth of the jaw bone at this vulnarable portion per soldier, killed him, and he moved to the next in fraction of a second! And he had to move around the crowd of soldiers as fast as possible and hitting hard and fast on his enemies and finished them all, running round and round around them not giving any chance to them to hurt him by their sword or spear. Just let us immagine he took 1.5 seconds for a soldier and one second to move out, takes 1000x 2.5 seconds = 42 minutes. So his body was in terific speed and powerful stricking and going round and round around the soldiers to a distance of 1.2 miles, and if we take 4 sft. Per soldier it amounts to 4000 sft. for 1000 soldiers, and his body worked like a machine, and by his sweat, he lost water content in his blood and due to dehydration, he was about to colapse.Then he demanded water from the LORD and God openned a fountain for him and he drank water and his life came back and survived (Jud.15: 15-20). All glory to God.
